Dog Racing Could be Nearing an End in Florida

Some commissioners have proposed a revision to the state constitution to ban betting dog races. This revision would end dog racing by Dec 31, 2019.

We compiled a list of pros and cons.

PROS (according to state greyhound racing association)
Fans bet $80,000,000 last year and $11,000,000 went to the state.
Employs 3,000+ people state-wide

CONS (according to animal welfare groups)
Dogs tested positive for cocaine
Over 400 dogs have died since 2013

Just something to keep in mind for when voting rolls around later this year.

Here’s the link to the proposed revisions
